We are very proud of the social actions our school takes each year and are always very appreciative and overwhelmed by the support shown by families of Hart.
In December 2022 we completed the Rudolph Run for Butterwick Hospice! EYFS and KS1 ran a whole 1KM around the playground and KS2 ran a whopping 2KM. We were amazed by the support of our families as more than £1700 was raised for the charity!
Bright Sparks £20 Challenge
In December 2022 we accepted the challenge from Alice House Hospice to try and make the most money for the charity starting with only £20. Our School Council organised a range of fundraising activities. The first was a Movie and PJ night, the event was a great success and all children that attended had a fantastic time. We also started a 2p Mile challenge where we managed to raise enough 2ps to stretch the distance of a mile which was 62,137 2p coins to be exact! Finally, to introduce our new House Points system we had a Sponsored House Games Competition, where children teamed up with their fellow house mates to compete in a range of sporting events, we all had so much fun and we cannot wait for the next one!
In total, with all of the events combined, we were able to raise £1325 for Alice House Hospice.
Hart for Hearts Day
To help promote and support the increase of defibrillators across the town, we had our very own Hart for Hearts Day. Children made a voluntary donation to take part in the non-uniform day and we also had a ‘preloved’ book sale. We raised a total of £173.83!
We were extremely lucky to have Dave, the Trustee from DS43 Community Defibrillators, and Louise a volunteer guardian of the defibrillators, visit us to talk to us about and demonstrate CPR. Children had a great time learning about this and now know about the importance of defibrillators!
In conjunction with Hart for Hearts Day we decided to focus on compassion. The children learnt what it means to be compassionate and our Pupil MPS, Junior Leadership team and School Council came up with a great idea to demonstrate this across the village. The children worked with Miss Crowe to write specially written messages on wooden hearts and hid them around the village for local residents to find. We hope that it brought a smile to the faces of those who found them!
